The Moloney Difference

It is our goal at Moloney Painting to be nothing less than exceptional. In an industry littered with unprofessional contractors, we work extra hard to separate ourselves from the rest. We deliver our services with integrity and with your best interests in mind.

We pick up the phone.

Can’t get ahold of another contractor? Had a no show with no warning? Unfortunately, that’s typical in our industry. Moloney Painting is different. We answer the phone, provide tight turnarounds, show up on time, and regularly keep you in the loop. Skeptical? Call us to see for yourself: +1-250-217-8112.

Most comprehensive prep work.

The quality of a painting project is most reliant on
the initial prep work, and yet it’s the easiest place to
cut corners because it isn’t visible in the end. We
take pride in our Detailed Prep Work Process which
results in durable, long-lasting paint jobs — saving
you money and headache in the long-run.

Highest quality products.

We don’t skimp out on our choice of materials in order to benefit our bottom line. We use the highest quality, most suitable paint for the job, and have invested heavily into equipment that produces a consistently higher quality finish.

Glowing references.

Moloney Painting will gladly provide you with a healthy list of references. We encourage you to call our references, or drive by our past work. Also, check out our Google reviews and testimonials page to see why our clients love us.

Detailed contracts. Zero hidden fees.

Our contracts detail exactly what to expect before any work proceeds. It is clearly written and explained in our estimate. The final price never changes from what was initially promised, with zero hidden fees. We stick to what is promised (and often go above and beyond!).

Zero money down. Guarenteed satisfaction.

Unlike most contractors, we don’t require upfront
deposits. We are financially secure and able to
procure materials without your help. We don’t
expect a penny until you are completely satisfied
with the end result. This also incentivizes us to
complete the job in a timely manner.

Dependable, friendly staff.

Our friendly, clean-cut employees are thoroughly
trained and knowledgeable in all aspects of expert
preparation and painting. We know how to manage
projects with minimal disruptions. We stay from
start to finish and never leave a project until you are
completely satisfied.

Licensed and insured.

Moloney Painting has all the necessary business
licenses to work in your area, and any cases of worker injury or property damage are covered by our Insurance Policy. Although these may seem like
small details, this is what separates adequate
Victoria painters from the truly exceptional ones.


Our Happy Customers


Past Projects

Our Partners & Suppliers


We can understand how this is such a common question. After all, a painting contractor has numerous jobs on the go and requires many employees to operate without hiccups — so for many contractors it is tempting to sub-contract their projects so they can save the hassle of hiring/managing their own employees. However, this practice typically results in lower-quality work and less care and respect on the part of the painters, as they are not incentivized to uphold the company’s reputation.

At Moloney Painting, we never sub-contract any portion of our work. We have hired the best painters, have developed standard practices and training that results in consistently high-quality work. If we were to hire sub-contractors, we feel our work might suffer and not be to the standards we demand.

This is a great question to ask and anyone looking to hire a painter in Victoria BC should be hiring one who is insured, bonded, and fully licensed.

Moloney Painting is insured for Public Liability for $5,000,000.00. The industry standard is usually 3 million liability, but we go the extra step to ensure we are sufficiently covered. What this means is that if we were to have an accident on your property, you are covered up to our insured amount. Whilst we have never had to use this policy, I believe it’s a fundamental part of any business, especially for painters. If requested, we can provide our policy for your viewing prior to starting your project.

As for bonding, we are one of a handful of companies in Victoria that have bonding. What this means is that we are able to supply a labour and materials bond if required. To receive this we go through a stringent process from the bonding company. They check all your financials and thoroughly check prior projects. This bonding is usually for larger projects and means that we provide a labour and materials bond to ensure all work is thoroughly completed.

This is a great question as we’re sure you want to hire a painter who has the proper licences to complete your project safely and legally. Moloney Painting is fully licensed to work within British Columbia. We have a business licence for all of the local municipalities in Greater Victoria. We are up to date with our Workers Compensation (our number is 465024). We encourage everyone to check that the contractor they’re planning to hire is up to date on licenses and Workers Compensation. Many small contractors skip this and ignore regulations, leaving homeowners liable if a worker injures themselves on their property. With Moloney Painting, you don’t have to worry about that!

When it comes to prepping surfaces for painting, we get asked a lot of questions. That’s why Moloney Painting includes full details of our preparation practices on all of our quotes. Our prep work typically inculdes washing/cleaning/dusting surfaces, scraping peeling/flaky paint, power & hand sanding to smooth edges, applying a coat of primer to bare wood, and taping/masking off windows and other areas. We also prep the surroundings by covering and protecting gardens, decks and sidewalks when painting the exterior of your home, and covering furniture and other personal assets with high-quality drop cloths when painting the interior of your home.

There is a reason why we include full preparation. If a customer requested that we just paint with no prep, we wouldn’t take the job. We like to paint what we prep. That way we take full ownership of the project’s quality in case anything goes wrong.

Choosing an honest and trustworthy painter in Victoria BC can seem difficult. There are more and more companies opening up shop every week, and it can be difficult to know if they can be trusted. But that’s why you are here. You want to know if we provide references from past clients. My name is Caio Cesar Dandalo, the owner of Moloney Painting, and I encourage you to contact our past clients so you can hear for yourselves that we can be trusted to carry out your painting project with the utmost professionalism.

There are a lot of review sites out there these days. Yelp, Google +, and Yellow Pages are just a few generic review sites for painting contractors. The difficult thing is you can’t see what those homes look like and what type of work you can expect from us.

To combat the problem with review sites, Moloney Painting provides written references, including addresses of past customers and their phone numbers (with their permission) so you can follow up directly with them and ask about their experiences with us. I urge all potential customers to check with past clients — it’s simply the best way to ensure you’re hiring the right team.

As consumers, we want the best deal. No matter if we are shopping for a new TV, vehicle or for professional painting services. That is why we often get asked if we will price match another company’s quote. We can understand you want the best possible price and the highest quality product. Homes in the Victoria area are expensive and you need to save as much money as possible when painting as part of a renovation or update.

However, price matching is not a practice that Moloney Painting gets involved in. To properly price match, one needs to ensure that all pricing includes exactly the same amount of detail and scope of work. Our principle is that we have estimated for a thorough and quality paint job with no short cuts. We don’t sub-contract and we pay our employees above market value. We have a loyal crew with some being around for 10+ years. Moloney Painting values their commitment to quality work and to Moloney Painting.

This is a great question because you want to know exactly how many people are going to be painting your home. Depending on the size of the project, Moloney Painting usually staffs each project with 2 painters. We never stop/start a project unless it’s a weather-related delay. Depending on circumstances, Moloney Painting can add more painters to a project to expedite the process.

Moloney Painting’s preference is to use Cloverdale Paint products as we have been working with them for many years. However, if a customer prefers another supplier, we’re happy to oblige or make alternative recommendations. We have found Cloverdale Paint to be most helpful in a few situations where warranty has been an issue. Cloverdale Paint is a company that stands 100% behind their products and we like to work with a brand that does so. This is good for home owners in case of the rare occasion where a batch of paint does not properly stand the test of time.
